Saints Tight End Foster Moreau Announced He's in Full Remission From Cancer

New Orleans Saints tight end Foster Moreau announced he's "in full remission from Hodkin Lymphoma" in a tweet shared on Monday (July 3).

"After a few tumultuous months, I’ve been blessed with the news that I am in full remission from Hodgkin Lymphoma! I’m so grateful to everyone who reached out to offer their love and support; our prayers were answered. From here I will continue to live my life as God intended AMDG," Moreau wrote.

Moreau, 25, a New Orleans native, said he initially learned of his Hodgkin's lymphoma diagnosis during "a routine physical" conducted by the Saints' medical team while taking a free agent visit in March.

Saints team physician Dr. John Amoss helped make the diagnosis, according to ESPN. Amoss had previously discovered Philadelphia Eagles long snapper Jon Dorenbos had an aortic aneurysm -- similarly when Dorenbos was undergoing a physical with the Saints -- after a proposed trade in 2017.

The New Orleans native and former LSU standout signed a three-year, $12 million deal with the Saints two months later.

"Through somewhat of a miraculous process, this Free Agency period has been life changing for me," Moreau wrote while publicly announcing his diagnosis on March 22. "During a routine physical conducted by the Saint’s medical team down in New Orleans, I’ve come to learn that I have Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and will be stepping away from football at this time to fight a new opponent: Cancer.

"I’m grateful for the support and thankful for people who have stood firm with me. There hasn’t been a single step I’ve taken without hundreds of people lighting the path before me, and I will continue to seek their guidance.

"That being said, I’ll go kick this thing’s ass and get back to doing what I love! AMDG!"

Hodgkin's lymphoma is a form of cancer that spreads in white blood cells and affects part of the patient's immune system. The disease is the less common of two general types of lymphoma, with the more common being non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Moreau was selected by the Raiders at No. 137 overall in the fourth-round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The former LSU standout recorded 91 receptions for 1,107 yards and 12 touchdowns through his first four NFL seasons.
